The proceedings related to the alleged hazing and suicide of a Marine in Afghanistan continue to make news. San Jose Mercury News coverage here.
As we were all hunkering down on the East Coast as Hurricane Irene blew through, an Army Captain apparently took the opportunity to shoot and kill 4 (including his wife and an 8-year boy) and wound 2 cops before taking his own life. I can’t imagine that mental illness isn’t somehow an issue in this story from the Philadelphia Inquirer, here, which reports the Captain may have just returned from one of several deployments in his career to the CENTCOM AOR.
